    rewards are rng and not based on professions skill. if you able to dig in zone - you are able to get items.

    But I assume not all rares are available in those few digsites I have access to. (there are far more e.g. dwarf digsites in azeroth)
    So Kaldorei Wind Chimes or The Innkeeper's Daughter would be nice but most probable not obtainable at skill 100...

    ...or does is solely depend on character-lvl?:rolleyes:

    edit:
    even @Crystalpall has only found 5 rare artifacts acc. to his achievements...

    f2p could ever do 3 dig zones. Night elf, frossil, dwarf.
    http://www.wowhead.com/archaeology-projects#0+17+1

    You can get everything but Troll items as you cant enter zone due to player level restriction.

    Prior ninja profession fix secondary professions could be leveled past 100 to its actual cap.
    Regardless. Person can dig those 3 zones with 75 skill and get items.

    It definitely doesn't. Back when f2p dks were a thing, I went on an archy spree to get the fossil mount. Can tell you that even at 375 skill + level 55, the items you get from nelf / fossil / dwarf are the exact same as 225 skill + level 20. Only additions were the troll archy items.

    That's not true. Some rare finds only proc after reaching a certain skill threshold.

    That is exactly what I meant. I want to know which rares REALLY can drop for lvl20s with skill 100...;)

    I can't speak for its accuracy at skill 100 but back when I farmed archeology on a f2p DK the ones listed as skill 450 req were pretty much correct as I couldn't proc any of them. Pterrordax hatchling was out of reach too.

    Another thing to remember is that rares don't ever repeat so if you've gone through MANY digs and don't ever get any new rares it's a pretty good indicator that you've exhausted the pool.

    Raptor skeleton mount is used to be doable on f2p. Reflexes did it a while back, never logged out and just farmed. I think it's obtainable on 20 too you just can't learn it until lvl 40. For a while f2ps could create a DK on Moonguard and it would be playable until you logged out. This can't be done anymore though.

    It's called Fossilized Raptor and I got in on my 90 main in MoP while I was grinding the Seeker of Knowledge title, but I can ride it on my 20s or 29s, both factions.

    100% it was, but maybe it changed? Or maybe it's 75 skill but level locked? It's te-te-te-te-te-TEST TIME!


    @Dimmuborgir flattered you chose me as an example but I'm not even sure I have all obtainable :(

    Troll digsites were never unlocked for f2ps, you could only do them with dks if you had the bug.

    Haha, you are my reference regarding f2p-achievements, so yes, you've got a personal stalker;)

    Edit:
    122 artifacts so far -> 3 rares. Is this normal rng-luck? i guess so...

    I don't recommend anyone grind out the titles for Archy. It's THE most boring goddamned grind in the game and one of the longest. Ppl think Bloodsail Adm., Insane, Jenkins titles are bad? LOL At least with those you're doing something or queing instances, etc. SoK it's just 'dig, mount, fly, dismount, scope, run, scope, run, scope, dig, mount, fly....' on and on thousands of times often in hard to reach spots. Extremely annoying and soul-crushing boredom.

    Never again for this muchacho. :p
